How am I doing right now? I'm not entirely sure I can fully answer that question. On one hand, I'm excited that I'm gaining traction on my research and am able to start envisioning what my capstone paper will look like... on the other hand, I'm overwhelmed with the amount of thought-work, research, and pulling together the specific content. Additionally, I'm really nervous about an interview I have on Thursday with a former Chairman of the NLRB, John Ring. There's a little voice in my head that keeps saying "Don't sound stupid" or "Don't ask that question, it's too pedestrian." On top of it all, my workspace is a mess (You don't have to be nice and say "Oh, it's not that bad." Because I know it is haha). Between work, school and life in general, it's hard to keep my workspace clean and organized. Yet, I only work best once everything is in its place- so there's additional pressure to clean things up as I finish a workday. I know I'll get through this, but in the meanwhile, I'm definitely in the "thick of it."
